Vikki Carr To Play Desert New Year's Eve Concert
Carr is a three-time Grammy Award winner, whose international success spans four decades. She has released 59 bestselling recordings including, "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You," "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "It Must Be Him."
Carr's music embraces two languages, which made her among the first artists to bridge the cultures of the United States and Latin America. Carr was the first female to regularly guest host for Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show and she was frequently a guest on The Carol Burnett Show and a visitor and guest host on Michael Jackson's ABC radio show.
Since making her first personal appearance in Mexico in 1972, the country has had a love affair with Carr. Songs like Total, Disculpame, Esos Hombres, and Mala Suerte earned her Gold and Platinum albums in the U.S. and Latin America. Carr followed with Grammy Award nominees Simplemente Mujer in 1985, Cosas del Amor in 1992, Brindo a la Vida, al Bolero y a Ti in 1993 and Recuerdo a Javier Solis in 1995, taking three of the four awards.
Carr will be joined by The Pat Rizzo Orchestra. Rizzo has had a varied career spanning over more than three decades performing and recording with such diverse artists as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Sly and the Family Stone and War.
